This discovery pack contains the following:

- 100g Organic Bancha Hojicha
Bancha Hojicha is a green tea that has been roasted at a very high temperature (around 200°C) which gives it woody, roasted notes like that of coffee. This light, caffeine-free tea is very popular in Japan, and is always served in restaurants alongside raw fish with which it pairs perfectly.

- 100g Genmaicha Yama
Genmaicha is a green tea to which toasted and sometimes puffed rice is added. Today this tea is enjoyed across Japan, especially during mealtimes. the Genmaicha Yama in this selection is a blend of bancha and toasted brown rice.It develops iodised notes which pair seamlessly with the roasted and toasted notes of the rice.

- 100g Kabuse Cha midori
Some tea plants are covered with fabric in order to stimulate a reaction in the leaves. As they are deprived of light, the leaves develop an intense umami flavour which is very popular in Japan. While Gyokuro may be the most well-known "shaded" teas, Kabuse Cha ("covered tea"), with its smooth texture, is well worth a try!
